Hey all,

I have one tbh that I dubbed "Margabeetaville" and now I am getting another one. Any suggestions on names for the new one?

My first hive was "Beezus" after a character in a children's book. Next two hives were "Sue-Bee" and "New-Bee" named after an dear old Aunt who took a lively interest in my beekeeping. Future hives will be named "Scooby" and "Doobie".

I did a whole blog post on this topic because my three hives are ACTING like their names - Bermuda, Proteus, Mellona.....hmmmm.  Maybe 1, 2, and 3 would have worked better!

I use numbers (1, 2, 3, etc.) but I also indicate which type of bee I have in each hive.  So mine are #1NWC, #2NWC, #3MH, #4GI.  New World Carnis, Minnesota Hygenic, Golden Italians.  My advise: Do it whichever way suits you.

Lefthand hive, righthand hive - works with two  grin  Up in Maine it'll be lefthand hive, righthand hive, and middle hive.  Now if we get more hives in either location, we're in trouble!  tongue

I did some looking around online and found a neat little sight. I'm now thinking of calling them birds of the muses. A common story was that infants whose lips were touched by bees would become great speakers, poets, storytellers, and philosophers. Thus, bees were often called "birds of the muses".

I've named two of them after my grandsons, and the other two just have numbers right now.  My eldest grandson has been given the assignment to come up with names for them.

I got my bees from where the old chicken ranch in La Grange stood, on which the musical, "The Best Little brothel in Texas" was based.  So I've named all mine the names of the bleep.  Miss Mona, Doatsy Mae, and Taddy Jo.  Fancy was already named.

That's very neat. A great way to remember people who are no longer with us.
